I don't think she understands that. There may even have been some in the Kennedy Center audience, judging from this report:
In her acceptance speech, Fey touched on her best-known bit -- her Palin imitation --and offered some mock hands-across-the-political-divide commentary. The rise of conservative women in politics, she said pointedly, is good for all women, "unless you don't want to pay for your own rape kit . . . unless you're a lesbian who wants to get married to your partner of 20 years . . . [or] unless you believe in evolution."My husband and I like 30 Rock, as do some of our conservative friends. Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin are smart and funny in it. Would they be surprised to hear us say that? I don't hate Tina for her political views or for doing her Palin thing on SNL (though I think she's a lot funnier as Liz Lemon). It's too bad Tina doesn't seem to value this segment of her fan base.
The lines played first to nervous laughter and then to not much laughter at all.

**Thanks, Michelle, for pointing this out: Tina Fey recycles Palin rape kit lie.
